Physical File Member Monitor

We have an EDI system that moves physical file members to other files (like history files) once part orders have been successfully transmitted and received. Due to network or other issues, sometimes these orders don't get processed and the member will be 'stuck' in the file. I would like a way to monitor for members that remain in a physical file for an extended period of time. All member names are unique.

Hi,

You’ll probably need to write your own program for this. You’ll need to use DSPFD to get a member list in a file, then read the file and check the member dates/times to see how long the member has been ‘stuck’ in the file, then take your appropriate actions (send message, move member or whatever you need to to).

You could then schedule your program to run once a day or once a week.

Regards,

Martin Gilbert.
